    Hi, anyway what I want is a 2-3 minute soloish kinda thing for bass that not too many people would have heard, medium difficulty, Incubus - battlestar scralatchtica kinda thing but not quite as repetitive or as dependent upon other instruments, I can't slap though. I just want to show off a bit:). If there is such a thing is it in tab form? Because I'm self taught and haven't really bothered with learning musical notation yet. A link or something would be great.

    Instead of playing a bassline, why don't you play the melody of a tune? That wouldn't require any flashiness and would come across just fine, You could embellish it any way you want. Choose something everyone will know, though. You'll get more audience interest that way.
